1 Chronicles 9
The People in Jerusalem...
And all Yisra`el registered themselves by genealogy. And see, they were written in the book of the sovereigns of Yisra`el. And Yehudah was exiled to Babel for their trespass.
And the first inhabitants who were in their possessions in their cities of Yisra'el, were the priests, the Lewites, and the Nethinim.
And in Yerushalayim dwelt some of the children of Yehudah, and some of the children of Binyamin, and some of the children of Ephrayim and Menashsheh:
Uthai son of Ammihud, son of Omri, son of Imri, son of Bani, of the sons of Perets, the son of Yehudah.
And of the Shilonites: Asayah the first-born and his sons.
And of the sons of Zerah: Ye'u'el, and their brothers, six hundred and ninety.
And of the sons of Binyamin: Sallu son of Meshullam, son of Hodawyah, son of Hasenu'ah;
and Yibneyah son of Yeroham; and Elah son of Uzzi, son of Mikri; and Meshullam son of Shephatyah, son of Re'uw'el, son of Yibniyah;
and their brothers, according to their generations, nine hundred and fifty-six. All these men were heads of a father's house in their fathers' houses.
And of the priests: Yedayah, and Yehoyarib, and Yakin;
and Azaryah son of Hilqiyah, son of Meshullam, son of Tsadoq, son of Merayoth, son of Ahitub, the officer over the House of Elohim;
and Adayah son of Yeroham, son of Pashhur, son of Malkiyah; and Ma'asai son of Adi'el, son of Yahzerah, son of Meshullam, son of Meshillemith, son of Immer;
and their brothers, heads of their fathers' houses, one thousand seven hundred and sixty, able men for the work of the service of the House of Elohim.
And of the Lewites: Shemayah son of Hashshub, son of Azriqam, son of Hashabyah, of the sons of Merari;
and Baqbaqqar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattanyah son of Mika, son of Zikri, son of Asaph;
and Obadyah son of Shemayah, son of Galal, son of Yeduthun; and Berekyah son of Asa, son of Elqanah, who dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites.
And the gatekeepers: Shallum, and Aqqub, and Talmon, and Ahiman, and their brothers - Shallum the chief.
And up till then they were gatekeepers for the camps of the children of Lewi at the Sovereign's Gate on the east.
And Shallum son of Qore, son of Ebyasaph, son of Qorah, and his brothers, from his father's house, the Qorhites, were over the work of the service, guards of the thresholds of the Tent. And their fathers had been guards of the entrance to the camp of YHWH.
And Pinehas son of El'azar was leader over them in time past. YHWH was with him.
Zekaryah son of Meshelemyah was gatekeeper at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.
All those chosen as gatekeepers at the thresholds were two hundred and twelve. They were registered by genealogy, in their villages. Dawid and Shemu'el the seer had appointed them to their office of trust.
So they and their sons were over the gates of the House of YHWH, the House of the Tent, by watches.
The gatekeepers were on the four sides: the east, west, north, and south.
And their brothers in their villages had to come with them from time to time for seven days.
For the four chief gatekeepers were in an office of trust. They were Lewites, and they were over the rooms and treasuries of the House of Elohim.
And they spent the night all around the House of Elohim because they had the duty, and they were to open it morning by morning.
And some of them were over the vessels of service, for they brought them in and took them out by count.
And some of them were appointed over the vessels, even over all the vessels of the set-apart place, and over the fine flour and the wine and the oil and the incense and the spices.
And some of the sons of the priests blended the compound of spices.
And Mattithyah of the Lewites, the first-born of Shallum the Qorhite, was entrusted with the making of the flat cakes.
And some of their brothers of the sons of the Qehathites were over the showbread, to prepare every Sabbath.
And these were the singers, heads of the fathers' houses of the Lewites, in the rooms, and were exempted from other duties, for they were employed in that work day and night.
These heads of the fathers' houses of the Lewites were heads throughout their generations. They dwelt at Yerushalayim.
The Genealogy of Saul...
And Ye`i`el the father of Gib`on, whose wife`s name was Ma`akah, dwelt at Gib`on.
And his first-born son was Abdon, then Tsur, and Qish, and Ba'al, and Ner, and Nadab,
and Gedor, and Ahyo, and Zekaryah, and Miqloth.
And Miqloth brought forth Shim'am. And they too dwelt alongside their relatives in Yerushalayim, with their brothers.
And Ner brought forth Qish, and Qish brought forth Sha'ul, and Sha'ul brought forth Yehonathan, and Malkishua, and Abinadab, and Esh-Ba'al.
And the son of Yehonathan was Merib-Ba'al, and Merib-Ba'al brought forth Mikah.
And the sons of Mikah: Pithon, and Melek, and Tahrea,
and Ahaz, who brought forth Yarah; and Yarah brought forth Alemeth, and Azmaweth, and Zimri. And Zimri brought forth Motsa;
and Motsa brought forth Bin'a, and Rephayah was his son, El'asah his son, Atsel his son.
And Atsel had six sons whose names were these: Azriqam, Bokeru, and Yishma'el, and She'aryah, and Obadyah, and Hanan. These were the sons of Atsel.
